If the Brandon Coats court case had turned out differently, Dr. Margaret Gedde’s medical marijuana patients would have been talking about it.

But he lost. So they said nothing.

It was what they all feared anyway, Gedde said.

Coats, a 34-year-old quadriplegic whose doctor prescribed medical marijuana to stop his muscle spasms, recently lost his wrongful termination suit against Dish Network, which fired him in 2010 for testing positive for THC, the chemical in marijuana. Medical and recreational marijuana are both legal in Colorado, where Coats lives and works, but it’s against Dish’s national company policy. He said he was using it off-duty, but it didn’t matter.
